Good book, not great, but good enough. It's nice to have multiple female protaganists, including two different female presidents, so there is that... although the topic sexism in science is a bit of a subplot throughout, it just showed the strength and perseverence of the main character.

The book does progress pretty closely with the movie, with some major diversions in plot line. I do think that I like how the movie handled some topics better than the book did. A lot of the difficulty 'post event' is more easily stomached with the limitations the movie put in place.

The books big reveal is a big too grand. I like how the somehow likeable carny asborbed the story. I didn't really see him being one of the more moderate and open characters at the start.
